Atletico Madrid has signed Netherlands forward Memphis Depay from La Liga rivals Barcelona for three million euros ($3.25 million), the two clubs announced on Friday.

The 28-year-old has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Atletico after an injury-hit spell at Camp Nou.

The transfer could cost Atletico up to an extra one million euros in add-ons.

Barcelona said the deal included an option for them to buy versatile Belgian international Yannick Carrasco from Atletico.

Depay scored 14 goals in 42 matches for Barca after signing for the Catalan giants from Lyon in 2021.

But injury problems and the arrival of Poland striker Robert Lewandowski from Bayern Munich led to Depay only making four appearances for Xavi Hernandez’s men this season.

Depay is the Netherlands’ second-highest scorer of all time with 43 goals and netted once at the 2022 World Cup.

He enjoyed a fruitful five-year spell at Lyon after a disappointing stint with Manchester United.

Diego Simeone’s Atletico has struggled this term and is fourth in La Liga, 13 points behind leaders Barca, having also been knocked out of the Champions League.

Depay will be expected to replace Joao Felix who left Madrid earlier this month to join Chelsea on loan.

With the 28-year-old registered as an Atletico player, all that remains is for him to make his debut for his new club, although Saturday’s game against Real Valladolid may come too soon for the Dutchman.
